Science educator Bill Nye intensified his ongoing feud with Congressman Todd Akin today by releasing a freestyle rap video that calls out the Missouri politician for his controversial recent statements and his lack of knowledge about science.
The 56 year old Nye responded by lambasting Akin in a live television interview and challenging him to a debate, an invitation which Akin accepted.
Now Nye has returned to his roots in music to taunt Akin ahead of thier scheduled showdown. The video shows Nye wearing a grey suit and his trademark bow tie freestyling to an old school rap beat.
The full song is expected to be released on Vimeo within days, but The Daily Currant has obtained an exclusive transcript for our readers:
Yo Yo Yo
So Todd Akin you say pregnancy from rape is rare
But science says you're wrong and you don't seem to care
You're ignorant of biology and medicine so I declare
That your mind is as empty as Clint Eastwood's chair
I have to say Todd your ignorance has me distraught
You ought to learn these things in high school when they're taught
But I guess you were sniffing glue in the parking lot
While I was in science class freebasing thought
Now I ain't trying to hate
Just gotta educate
All you dumb mutherfuckers out there
Who don't respect that science is great
We build planes and trains and spaceships to the stars
All you build are prisons of ignorance with blind faith as the bars
We've cured polio, and smallpox, and AIDS is coming next
Sorry just not impressed with a 2,000 year old text
That gets all the basic questions wrong and hasn't made one good prediction
Lest you challenge my conviction, I'll just say it - your book's a work of fiction
So Todd listen to my diction and free yourself of this addiction
to ignorance and hatred - its a terrible affliction
Never mind the cruxifiction, its time for an interdiction
Reality is so much more beautiful than your inaccurate depiction
Galaxies, pulsars, bosons, and quarks
Light up my mind like a thousand sparks
And Darwin, Hubble, Crick, and Einstein
You ain't got heros smarter than mine
Nothing can match the knowledge science brings
But its not just for fancy, theoretical things
iPhone, Google, Facebook - orchestras of code composed on silicon strings
So Todd I'm not even tired yet, but consider your ass versed
You're still low on knowledge, but you're about to be immersed
Cuz Bill Nye's comin' to St. Louis - October 21st
A representative for Nye confirims that the debate against Todd Akin is scheduled for Sunday October 21st at the St. Louis Science Center.
The Daily Currant has reached out to Todd Akin for a response, but phones in his Missouri campaign office were reported as disconnected.
